The Samaritan Health Center in West Bend is in need of Bingo prizes and other small gifts for their residents. The Samaritan Center is funded by the county and due to cuts, has become more and more reliant on donations. For our February community service project, we will be collecting prizes for the residents. Here’s a list of what they are looking for: small candies, chips, other snacks in miniature sizes, small lotions, toiletries, kleenex, shampoo, hand cream, decks of cards, small books of puzzles, crosswords, and any other small gifts or prizes.
We will have a basket at the office for your donations. Thank you!
